10,000: 1 Contrast? its only typical 1,000:1 contrast... and thats perfectly normal since thats the same contrast ratio dell's 24" have.

The only thing that impresses me about this monitor is the power usage.

You're looking at a picture of one monitor on another monitor and basing your opinion off that. Not exactly iron clad, my friend.

And don't confuse dynamic contrast ratio with static contrast ratio. Both of them help, but static is more important. And yes, there is a difference between the 4000:1 this monitor sports and 10000:1.

Isn't that just as big a contradiction as "new and improved?"
I learned a long time ago not to question the ways of the mighty [stupid] consumer Gods, for they are ill-tempered and slow to understand what you try and tell them in hundreds of letters of feedback sent to their mail box.

He has this monitor, as stated earlier in the thread. So yeah, it's a pretty good bit ironclad

On topic, I think the stats are just so-so, but a $370 price is great! It looks like an OK buy overall.

Glossy surround - the screen is not glossy

What do you people not understand?!?!? I HAVE THIS MONITOR AND PUT IT NEXT TO OTHER MONITORS FOR COMPARISON IN MY OWN HOUSE

READ MY POSTS PLEASE.



FFS you people are so naive. The monitor performs better than most of LCD's who claim 16k Dynamic contrast, while this monitor only has 4k.... and a 1k typical contrast ratio. While I don't base my quality off these numbers, they are higher than average. But comparing them when I bought the monitors from a store - this monitor stood out as really looking the best (it was the 3rd best looking one on a shelf of like 20) But it was only $400 at the time, the ones better than this started at 500+, and most advantages were physical, like stands

You say it performs better yet I see no testing to prove it. Naive is the wrong word to use. Try skeptical. I apologize for missing your post, but it wouldn't have made a difference considering I still don't see actual numbers.
